Gorgeous bubbly. Beautiful golden hue like the California sun and bubbles like froth from ocean waves washing along the coastline after crashing through the Big Sur rocks. This is a California beauty—5 foot 9 blonde with blue eyes, legs that won’t quit, effervescent personality with an ample chest. You can’t call it Champagne over here in the U.S. of A., but the 2000 GLORIA FERRER Carneros Cuvee gives the Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame a run for her money. Some like it French, but we just like it hot. A glorious Ferrer. –J.M.
